Wordless Wednesday with Linky - Cholla Flower - August 15, 2012


We had a little rain, and the only flower that bloomed was a cholla flower.
These were described to me when I was a little girl as puppy dog tails by my grandparents.









Do you have a family friendly blog? Please comment, and leave a link to your blog. I would love to come on over to visit.

  3. That's fantastic! Who'd think that a pretty little flower like that could come out of the prickles :)

  12. I've never seen one of those, but then I've never spent much time in the desert either. Very pretty!

  13. Oh wow, puppy dog tails huh? That's too cute. I've never seen one either. I use to have this cactus for years and it use to grow flowers, but it would bloom for one day and die and more would come. They were beautiful. I wish I knew the name of that cactus to buy another. My daughter bought for me in Vegas where my Mom use to live & she doesn't know either. Hmmm Maybe I should google that. hehehe

  18. The contrast between the prickly cactus and the lovely flower it produces makes the latter all the more special. Great photo!
